Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes! The past 22 years have gone by so fast. I am so blessed to have such great friends and family that keep me on a positive, progressive path. Thank you, #GodBless
What is the meaning behind each shoe's name?
These are RoseGold Apparel's latest footwear products from the Signature Collection I. All shoes are handmade fully Italian calf leather lined, complimented by 18 Karat rose gold hardware.
The first shoe is a bit loafer named, St. Giles. I landed on this name since I was born in London, England and lived in a small town called Chalfont St. Giles for the first 10 years of my life before moving to Dallas, Texas in 2005.
The second shoe is named, Luciano's Tassel. Luciano is an Italian name, as well as a Portuguese name derived from Latin, Lucianus (light). I found this name quite appropriate as this Loafer is cafe (light brown) Italian leather, hand crafted in Brazil.
The third & fourth shoe is named, Malcolm Monk Strap. Malcolm is my grandfather, father, and brother's middle name. As well as the alliteration, I found this name appropriate because without any of them, I would not be here today and would have never had the opportunity to start this venture. #rosegoldapparel
It's amazing to reflect back on all the small steps compounded over the past year and a half that allowed last night to take place. Very thankful for everyone's support in this stressful, challenging, fun, and growing venture. #rosegoldapparel
Great night with great people! Thank you to everyone who came out to RoseGold Apparel's Official Launch Party. I really appreciate the support and being able to share what means so much to me, with you. #RoseGoldApparel2018Launch
Thank you @royalteatv for having me out yesterday. I had a wonderful time meeting with you and talking about @rosegoldapparel. Amazing to reflect back on all the small steps and venture started almost 2 years ago. Stay tuned, full interview coming soon!
All shoes apart of the 'Signature Collection I' releasing March 15th are Blake Welt stitched. This means the upper is wrapped around the insole, and then one single stitch binds the outsole, insole, and upper all together. Having the outsole directly stitched to the insole allows for more flexibility, durability, and lighter weight footwear. #March15#shoes#rosegoldapparel
Adrenaline: I absolutely love it. It suppresses pain, fear, doubt, and allows you to achieve things you thought unattainable. I have come a long way in the past couple years at taming down how I achieve the thrill. In the past little over a decade I have been on my deathbed more than a few times, but only recently turned over a new leaf and started finding constructive, fun, but yet challenging activities to consume parts of my day and help see the true beauty of the Lord. Mountain biking is just one of the activities that allows me to not only get a nice workout, but also feel FULLY ALIVE. Allowing ALL your senses to be hyper alert at the same time is something I feel is diminishing in today's world indulged in technology, but I believe makes us grow more individually. Learning how to keep composure and find joy in stressful situations both mentally and physically helps in all aspects of life. People do need vices to subtract themselves from life's fast pace and overwhelming pressure, and I just encourage you to choose healthy ones. If you're not straining your potential and living on the edge, is it really living? #RoadToRado#growth#snapchatspecs
